    The Wolff & Horner Show - 2021 F1 Season

    The Wolff & Horner Show - 2021 F1 Season

    The 2021 Formula 1 Season hasn't just been about Red Bull Racing vs. Mercedes or Max Verstappen vs. Lewis Hamilton. It's also been about Christian Horner vs. Toto Wolff.

    We reckon that EVEN IF the Verstappen-Hamilton title battle comes to an end, the Wolff-Horner show might just continue for years to come.

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal look back at some of the most-feisty moments between Wolff-Horner. Their pot shots have been about track limits, disqualifications, front wings, rear wings, tactical fouls & a lot of other stuff. In fact, is there any part of the other's car they've not brought up for public scrutiny? Remember the recent 'score marks' comments from Horner?

    It's race week for the inaugural 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix - and we'll be back with our race preview in a few days. Till then, sit back & enjoy the 'Toto Wolff & Christian Horner' show in Formula 1 & on the Inside Line F1 Podcast. Tune in!

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal discuss Lewis Hamilton-Mercedes' advantage over the rest of the field. Why aren't Red Bull Racing-Max Verstappen worried at their pace deficit? If they're worried, they're definitely not expressing it in public - apart from Christian Horner's crass statements every now and then, of course. 

    What happened to the Mclarens? And how did the AlphaTauri drivers not score despite starting in the top-10? Alpine's fantastic strategy for Fernando Alonso, Sergio Perez's charge & yes, the tyre bursts in Qatar. We discuss them all. Tune in!

    Can Mercedes Sustain Pace? 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Qatar Grand Prix

    Can Mercedes Sustain Pace? 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Qatar Grand Prix

    Can Mercedes sustain the monstrous pace they showed in Brazil last weekend? We think that's the more pertinent question to ask than to wonder if Red Bull Racing can strike back.

    It's a new Grand Prix venue for everyone this weekend - a first for the 2021 Formula 1 season!

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal preview the upcoming 2021 Qatar Grand Prix. The narratives are the usual ones - Verstappen vs. Hamilton, Ferrari vs. Mclaren, Gasly vs. Alpine and more. 

    And of course, do Mercedes actually have the 'right to review' an incident that wasn't investigated by the FIA whatosever? Yes, we're referring to the lap 48 incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. Tune in!

    How Scary Is Hamilton-Mercedes' Turn Of Pace - 2021 Brazil GP Review

    Should Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen be worried at Mercedes-Lewis Hamilton's turn of pace in the 2021 Brazil Grand Prix? In fact, should Formula 1 be worried with Mercedes looking ominously quick?

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal hope that the Formula 1 title doesn't get decided before the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi. The irony is that after every race, the feeling has been that one team-driver would run away with the title only to see the rival team-driver strike back harder in the following race. Let's hope this trend continues till the last lap of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix!

    Also, has Ferrari pulled away for good from Mclaren? Just how much better are Hamilton-Perez compared to Bottas-Perez? Tune in to for our key talking points from the 2021 Brazil GP, a Lewis Hamilton overtaking fest.

    NOT Brazilian GP + 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Sao Paolo GP Preview

    NOT Brazilian GP + 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Sao Paolo GP Preview

    Yes, it's NOT the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend. It's the 2021 Sao Paolo Grand Prix. But what's the bet that everyone (well, almost!) will still refer to the race as the 'Brazilian Grand Prix'? Eh, what's in a name!

    And of course, it's also the final Sprint Race or F1 Sprint or Sprint Qualifying of the 2021 Formula 1 season. Again, what's in a name, eh!?

    in this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal preview the 2021 Sao Paolo Grand Prix that will be hosted at Interlagos (thankfully!). The last Sprint of the season means it's also the last time a driver can score 29 points on a weekend in 2021 - and Lewis Hamilton needs more points than anyone else at this point yet.

    Will we see a single team dominate proceedings at Interlagos? Will the altitude work to Red Bull Racing's advantage yet again? Or will the close battle between Red Bull Racing and Mercedes resume from this weekend? It's been a few weekends, we can tell. 

    Pierre Gasly vs. Alpine, Ferrari vs. Mclaren, freight delays, wet weather, Timo Glock and more. Tune in!

    Is Max Verstappen Running Away With F1 Title After A Dominating Win In Mexico? - 2021 Mexico City Grand Prix Review

    Is Max Verstappen Running Away With F1 Title After A Dominating Win In Mexico? - 2021 Mexico City Grand Prix Review

    Did we see one of the most-dominant wins of the 2021 Formula 1 season in the Mexico City Grand Prix? After overtaking both Mercedes cars into Turn 1 of the opening lap, Max Verstappen sped off into the distance. Given Red Bull Racing's dominance at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, Lewis Hamilton's second place ahead of Sergio Perez was that much more impressive. Track position helped Hamilton limit damage in the 2021 Formula 1 Drivers' Championship battle with Verstappen.

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal wonder if Max Verstappen is the favourite going into the last four rounds of the season. They celebrate Pierre Gasly's near-invisible race to fourth - a performance that neither Ferrari driver could match. Could Red Bull Racing have undercut Hamilton by pitting Perez earlier? Should Daniel Ricciardo have been penalised for his uncharacteristic mistake at Turn 1 of the opening lap? And finally, there's some context to Antonio Giovinazzi's sarcastic post-race message to Alfa Romeo Racing. Tune in!
